College English Association National Conference
March 27-29, 2008
St. Louis, Missouri
We invite papers on Passages on the Rivers of American Literature for the 39th annual meeting of the CEA.
From the Mississippi of Melville's confidence men and Mark Twain's Huck and Jim to the Riverworld of Philip Jose Farmer, rivers and travel on rivers have played an important role in American literature. The "Passages on the Rivers of American Literature" panel at the 2008 College English Association seeks papers dealing with any aspects of riparian life and travel in American literature, whether fiction, poetry, or other genres. Papers dealing with race and gender, ecocritical approaches, fantasy and science fiction, or noncanonical texts from any period are particularly welcome. The conference will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, March 27-29, 2007.
Proposals should be submitted via the online database at http://english.ttu.edu/cea/conftool by November 1st, 2007.
When you submit your proposal, you may use a pull-down menu to indicate your topic. Indicate at that pull-down menu that your submission should be directed to me, Jason L. Corner, chair of the panel.
To preserve time for discussion, CEA limits presentations to 15 minutes.
All presenters must become members of the College English Association by January 1, 2008. For membership information, contact Joe Pestino at email@example.com.
